My son has some weird issues lately.

I don't know if I should be concerned or not. The first really weird thing I noticed is if anyone is sitting next to him he gets really irritated and says they are breathing too loud or talking to loud or like my 4 year old was sitting on the same couch as him eating a snack (string cheese) and he got mad because she was "chewing in his ear". The other thing that just came up is if anyone but me touches his plate at dinner he won't eat it. Like if one of the other kids takes his plate to the table he says they got germs on it. He's 8 I just wonder if its some kind of phase or if it could point to other problems.

Me and my siblings did that shit to each other all the time. I wouldn't worry.

Sounds like he is developing a phobia. My oldest son has a phobia of backpack material! He can't hear it scratch or touch it.

Misophonia is the sound thing.

I've been that way since I was a kid.....yelling at my brother for breathing too loud and eventually bursting into tears because my mom couldn't make him stop.

It's hard to say. Keep an eye on it. Ask him about the plate touching issue, if it happens again.

Yup me too. I can't be around people who eat crunchy things. I get so mad I have to leave the room. My son has sensory processing disorder, as well as me. As I'm typing this I can hear the fabric of my shirt move and it's driving me bonkers!!

Sounds like siblings being siblings to me. I get annoyed when people chew loudly too.

Traditionally parents should be putting children to bed at the same time, this helps routines stay .  And it gives the child a feeling of completion.  The whole mind relates to life when it's rested right through the nignt, if possible, but a full 8 hrs. is crucial for sensory---sleep- deprivation not to take over .

Sounds ever make you sick? I'm very very sensitive to sounds certain ones peoples sniffling noses, coughs of others, sounds of cars/trucks in idle in the road. I get anxiety and frustrated and then i start melting down to tears to the point where I feel like I'm actually going to puke at times. I made a post about it not too long ago. Curious if you ever experienced feeling sick as a result of sounds?

I've had that problem most of my life,except for the germ thing.Always been extremely sensitive to any 'noises'.Things sounded a lot louder to me than they really were and it would make me so nervous.As I got older it lessened quite a bit,but still have a problem with loudness.I'm constantly complaining the tv is too loud,or people are yelling when they're actually speaking in a normal tone.I don't like to hear people chew either.

I've learned to live with it.
